      And then receive the glorious crown
      So let us his example follow
      And fear not if we die to-morrow.

      Sometimes the wished for haven reached
      But twice his bark was stranded on the beach

      O blessed Lord into this Grave
      His sailes unfurled his voyage tis oer
      His anchors gone hes safe on shore.
